About Amy & Paul Blessington

Retired couple enjoying the beautiful island of Hawaii

Amy & Paul Blessington purchased this house in 2009

Why Amy & Paul Blessington chose Kona Coast

Finding the perfect location in Kona is not so easy. You want to have great ocean views in a quiet neighborhood away from the highway, while still being minutes away from the beach, restaurants and shopping. The Registration ID# for this property is: GE-162-723-4304-02

What makes this house unique

Less than 10 minutes away is Kahalu’u beach. Kahalu’u is widely regarded as one of the top snorkeling spots in all of Hawaii. The variety and quantity of tropical fish at Kahalu’u is fantastic. For those first getting used to snorkeling, the private pool is a safe and easy way to get used to wearing a mask and snorkel. The location is also close to many other beautiful beaches, restaurants and shops. Choose among a wide variety of ocean and outdoor activities or simply just relax on the patio enjoying an intense ocean sunset.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful property. We loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful home for 3 nights in March 2017. The home was spotless, and had so many extras. We really appreciated the beach chairs, sun umbrella and small cooler on our trips to the beach. We loved sitting on the porch and listening to the birds as we enjoyed the beautiful view. We only crossed paths with Paul and Amy one time, and they were very gracious hosts. The only drawback was the bed seemed small for my husband and I, as we are used to a king sized bed. ( I think this is a double), but overall I would rate our experience as top notch and hope to stay here again.

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO was absolutely perfect for our honeymoon. It is conveniently located far enough from the resort area so that you can escape the tourism and actually be in Hawaii, but close enough you can still take advantage of the restaurants and activities located in that area.

There are plenty of beaches and hikes located within 20-30 minutes and Paul and Amy provide you with an excellent guide book on the best places to go.

Hawaii is expensive enough without having to eat out for every meal. My wife and I cooked breakfast every day and were able to bring home fresh caught fish for dinner. A washer and dryer is on site to do wash. This was undervalued when I did my search. With all the hiking and snorkeling we did, it was necessary to wash the sea and sweat from our clothes.

Paul and Amy were fantastic. They reply nearly instantly to any inquiries and highly value your privacy.

One last thing, while the house isn't immediately on the ocean, the view more than makes up for it. Located on top of a large hill, you have a panoramic view of the ocean with phenomenal sunsets.

I highly recommend a stay here!

NO PLACE LIKE HOME!

  • 5 of 5

Still can't believe how wonderful our stay at Paul and Amy's has been. Just left last Tuesday. The bed was identical to our sleep # bed and the double recliner provided evening comfort. And they have provided everything we needed. Always a nice cool breeze high up at the property. Highly recommend. We know where to stay next time. Thanks Paul and Amy

Kona Sea View

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Paul and Amy's guest home for 2 weeks. It was such a great experience. We had previously stayed in condos at beach level, and this year decided to give the higher elevation a try. We loved it. So much cooler at night and much more peaceful during the day. We had total privacy, but also access to the homeowners if needed, by text. We had a very small issue regarding the grill and it was attended to immediately. It also gave us the chance to meet Amy and Paul who were both super nice and helpful. We would absolutely recommend staying here, and plan to return again ourselves. We had a fantastic time.

Thanks so much!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for more. View, accommodations, and super hosts. Amy and Paul have a beautiful home and location. The apartment is simply an extension of what they have. The apartment is immaculate and furnished with everything needed for an extended stay for two people. We loved the location. It is quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of tourist, yet, has easy and quick accessibility to shopping, and touring. My wife and I agree, if available, any visit to the Big Island will be at Amy and Pauls.

Third time back.

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time coming back to Amy and Paul's rental home. Each time we come back they find a way to make it even better. In my opinion, there's no other rental on the island that has the view, comfort, and peacefulness that this one has. And for 1/3 the price of a hotel! Book with confidence! Mohalo Paul and Amy.
